Guardiola calls for calm and focus ahead of critical final day

PEP GUARDIOLA ENTERS NEWS CONFERENCE 2.

WHITE FLASH 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) PEP GUARDIOLA, MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER ON TITLE DECIDER SAYING: "First of all it's a dream to be here.

I didn't expect a month ago, when we were seven points behind this Liverpool, to be in the position we are now.

That's why it's a dream come true.

We show many things, of course now is not the moment to say how good we have done.

We have the chance to be champions if we win our game.

That's what we have to do.

We want to be big champions, if it happens it would be nice but nothing is going to change too much.

The fact that we have done incredibly well all season in all competitions means that we have the last two games for two titles, two finals.

We are going to play well, strong mentally, knowing it will be tough, we will have big problems and how will we react in these bad moments to try to make a good game.

First of all we have to focus on the game and how we want to play and not to focus on if the game is going bad, just be calm and always thinking and doing what we have to do." STORY: Manchester City will be judged only by the trophies they win and failure to seal the Premier League title on Sunday could result in critics trying to "destroy" the team, manager Pep Guardiola said on Friday.

Defending champions City lead Liverpool by a point ahead of the final game of the season and a victory at Brighton & Hove Albion will ensure Guardiola's side become the first English team to retain the title since Manchester United in 2009.

Liverpool, who are looking to end a 29-year drought for an English league title, were seven points ahead of City in January before the champions clawed their way back.

Midfielder Kevin De Bruyne could feature on the final day after shaking off a hamstring problem sustained in a 1-0 league victory over Tottenham Hotspur last month.
